Early On a Sunday Morning

With coffee at my left hand and thoughts bubbling about in my head, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the year 2010 and all that happened in its tenure.

In February, this blog got a HUGE makeover.  I switched platforms from wordpress to typepad, and I haven't looked back since.  Everything from the user-friendly interface to the complete customization is what I have been looking for in a blogging platform.  Typepad rocks my world. 

Back in March, I had my first performance in one of Nashville's premiere and prestigious music venues The Exit/In.  I performed a set with violinist Laurel Blackman and drummer Tim Good.  So many amazing artists have had shows on that stage, and I am proud to call myself one of them. 

What Gets Measured, Gets Managed


"What gets measured, gets managed." - Peter Drucker

There is so much power in this quote. If you've never tracked yourself, you don't even know how much power there is in tracking. I couldn't even explain it adequately. You wouldn't believe me. You'd think I was exaggerating. The simple act of paying attention to something will cause you to make connections you never did before, and you'll improve the those areas - almost without any extra effort.

I'm not a believer in "free lunch" and I don't think the universe vibrates things to you just by thinking about them. But the closest thing to a free lunch getting vibrated to you by the universe is writing things down as they happen.

Before I go any further, I need to give you one piece of advice - start small and build up, so you don't overwhelm yourself. This is just being pragmatic. You want to scale up gradually, as I wrote up in "The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking." You want to build small wins, lock them so they become automatic, and then expand.

I'd have a hard time convincing you of the power of tracking, so I'll just show you. I fill this out every single day.
